  • Engaging Employees in National Safety Month

    Marc Flanders, principal at consulting firm WC Solutions Group, sees a common mistake in workplace safety engagement.
    The mistake is in how incentives are targeted, Flanders tells EHS Today. Companies may think they’re checking off all the right boxes by incentivizing safety, then reward the wrong employees.
    “I see some companies put all their budget into the people who are safe for a year,” Flanders says. “I tell them, ‘Wait a minute. You’re spending all your money on the people who are safe. What are you doing to change the behavior of people who aren’t safe?'”
    Successful safety incentives programs need to have an “everybody wins” mentality. After all, a workplace isn’t (more…)

    Epic attracts employees from far and wide to its campus situated amid farm fields outside Madison, WI. The company has mushroomed in recent years and now employs more than 9,000.

    June is National Safety Month. What is your workplace doing to motivate, recognize and reward safe behavior?
    As safety recognition programs become standard for many companies, best practices are emerging.
    Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care in Colorado reduced safety incidents by more than a third since it introduced an incentivized safety program in 2009. The program focuses on public recognition in front of peers and sharing meaningful gifts with employees who stay safe.
    “Essentially, we felt like money comes and goes,” Kelly Gouge, Swingle’s director of operations, tells Lawn & Landscape Magazine for a “Spotlight on Safety” feature in the May issue.

  • Give the Workplace Gift Everyone Needs: Flexibility!

    Make flexibility a workplace gift in YOUR company!

    The flexibility to work when and where you want is a valued workplace benefit, especially this busy back-to-school time of year.

    As summer winds down, the workplace gift employees appreciate most is a flexible schedule!

    As people take last-minute summer outings and families prepare kids for the new school years, work/life balance is more important than ever.

    Late August is especially challenging for parents and caregivers sending older kids off to college and preparing younger ones to go back to school. There are some responsibilities people just need to take care of during a workday, like meeting their child’s Kindergarten teacher or attending mandatory parent school meetings.  A little flexibility this time of year can go a long way to building employee loyalty and morale.  It’s a valuable workplace gift indeed – and it’s good for your business, too!

    Give Workers the Workplace Gift of Flextime!
